    After 1 c4 b5 2 cxb5, I've played 2..d5, aiming for a Colle-like setup (...e6 ...Bd6 ...Nf6 ...O-O). In the "normal" Colle System, Black often gets counterplay by challenging White's center with P-c5. The comparable pawn attack in our position above would be P-c4, which is impossible because the c-pawn is on b5.
